Glycoproteins - protein + a few sugars - CHO is specific region for ID by other proteins - e.g.

, MHC class I and blood group antigens - also binding sites for Ag (viruses/ parasites) Proteoglycans (sugars with a little protein) - e.g., mucopolysaccharide, glycosaminoglycans - sugars + a few proteins - cell surfaces, ECM, CHO = anionic network - anticoagulation, compression, adhesion, structure Blood Group antigens - O: minimal CHO, ending in fucose - A: glycosyl transferase extends chain by adding Gal-N-Ac - B: glycosyl transferase extends chain by adding Gal Targetting - Mannose-6-P  lysosome - Sialic acid  secretory (or membrane bound if containing v. hydrophobic region) I cell disease - mucolipidosis - acid hydrolases necessary for proper lysosomal function are missing - N-acetyl glucosamine phosphotransferase is deficient o Enzymes lacks M-6-P (no targeting!) Synthesis of N-linked glycoproteins + protein targeting - targeting begins in the ER (cytoplasm proteins don’t have CHO) - dolichol phosphate = carrier of core oligosaccharides to be added - sugar is attached to every amide N of asparagines; must be Asn – XThr or Asn – X – Ser - partially processed in ER where 3 glucose and 1 mannose are removed - then, Golgi, sugars are added or removed Sunthesis of O-linked glycoproteins - Unlike N-linked, sugars are added sequentially instead of all at once! - Added to Ser or Thr Amino Acid Metabolism - 20% daily energy goes to resynthesizing proteins - N is lost from humans as HCO3- and NH4+ - α -KG ALWAYS participates in transamination

another way to transaminate .“ping-pong” reaction o this is why transamination doesn’t deplete CAC of integral intermediates!! st .2 step = “Pong” o enzyme-B6-NH2 + αKG  enzyme-B6 + Glu o enzyme catalyzes the reverse reaction using a different ketoacid Basically. then αKG can be used to make a new AA… never running out of ketoacids… make one. net release of AA into blood o Ala and Glu are > 50% total . lys. use one! Important Reaction: Oxaloacetate + Glutamate  aspartate + α KG b/c aspartate is the amino donor in urea synthesis and adenine synthesis Glucose-Alanine Cycle . you use one amino acid and Vit B6 to make one αKacid. thr Role of pyridoxal phosphate (Vitamin B6) .Excess Ala is formed .- transamination o removes AA’s α amino group as an intermolecular redox reaction o α carbon that receives amino group is at aldehyde or ketone oxidative levels o α carbon that donates amino group is at alcohol level Phenylalanine – NH3 NH3-Glutamate + αKG  Phenylpyruvate + o transamination to α-KG to form glutamate occurs with 17 AAs  AA + αKG  _______ + glutamate  Exceptions are post-absorptive state (eating).1 step = “Ping” o Phe + enzyme-B6  ketoacid (phenylpyruvate) + enzyme-B6NH2 o AA donates is α amino group to enzyme-bound B6 nd .

tyrosine ** cysteine synthesis requires #2 and # 3.g.. where lactate instead of Ala is exported from muscle Glutamate needs an oxidative deamination catalyzed by glutamic dehydrogenase o Glutamate + NAD  αKG + NADH + NH4 o v. ALT reaction runs in reverse o Get pyruvate for glucose synthesis o Get amino group for urea synthesis o Different from Cori Cycle. Threonine. Matt!) Nonessential Amino Acids .phenylketourics have no phenylalanine hydroxylase o have to avoid excess consumption Phe o tyrosine has to be supplemented Synthesis of Nonessential AAs 1..g. unfavorable o Equilibrium overcome in 2 ways:  Consumption of NH4 by urea synthesis  Can also form αKG by an alternate route = purine nucleotide cycle • GTP hydrolysis makes this rxn favorable!

Ser.urea synthesis is also regulated by N-acetylglutamate = allosteric activator of carbomyl phosphate synthase o more arginine  more enzyme activity .the higher the NH4 concentration.. NH4 is though! . the higher the synthesis of urea . the other through aspartate . there is a virtually unlimited supply .25 ATP ** when in urea synthesis failure: if treated w/ large doses of benzoic acid. and formate donate 1C fragments to the pool o Since serine can be derived from glucose.glucogenic  can give rise to a net production of glucose .
